The third stage of the Artic Race of Norway has been won by the Italian Gianni Moscon who conquered also the Leader’s Jersey.
The first classified for the Astana Pro Team has been the Belgian Laurens De Vreese, twenty-eighth at only 1’39” from the winner.
“It was a quite difficult final with the uphill finish in Korgfjellet Summit – explained De Vreese – we are here to do as better as possible with our sprinters, the Italian Guardini and the Kazakh Tleubayev, but nonetheless today I’ve tried to hold on the front position of the bunch… in the final the speed on the climb was so high but I kept a good position, even if not enough to play for the top ten.”
“Tomorrow, the last stage, seems very suitable for our sprinters so we will do our best to end this beautiful race in the best way possible” concluded De Vreese.
Tomorrow, fourth and last stage of the Artic Race of Norway, Arctic Circle / Bodø (193 km) with some hills in the first part of the stage and then a final circuit designed to facilitate a bunch sprint finish.
